Ecological Clerk of Works (ECoW)

ECoW 4


An ECoW is an ecologist appointed to work with and advise a developer or contractor on a specific project during the development process focusing on sensitive habitats and protected species.

The ECoW ensures that the project stays within the relevant laws and regulations (including planning conditions) regarding wildlife and ecology, working with the project staff to resolve any issues which may arise, seeking positive outcomes for both development and wildlife and conservation. Continual monitoring of species takes place throughout the construction process.
